Are these classes virtual or in-person? And when does the accelerator meet?

These classes are virtual and will be held weekly at 6 PM PST on Tuesday. To make full use of the program it's important entrepreneurs can be there for a majority of the classes. But we understand life happens so you it's okay if you miss a couple. The final Demo-Day Pitch Event will be a hybrid event, with the physical location being in East Palo Alto.
